Lucie + Michael
New York, Marina Del Rey
I've known Mike for many years, and I've never seen him this happy before until he met Lucie. The first time he introduced me to Lucie, I knew they would eventually get married and start a family together. And witnessing through my lens their wedding at the romantic Palazzo at Marina del Rey I realized that you can see a couple's love through their eyes. The way they kept looking at each other throughout the ceremony and reception was truly great and fun to capture.
Mike and Lucie's story is a classic one: they meet on a rainy day in 2010 in NYC, had a long conversation about everything from family values and Italian culture to their time at St John’s University, and then had a late dinner on Broadway. They saw each other every weekend since, and the rest is history, as Lucie likes to say. She mentioned that what she loves most about Mike is that he is a selfless person, he always puts the needs of others before his own. And that was evident at the wedding as Mike was always making sure everyone had a good time.
They tied the knot at Marina del Rey, a great venue with breathtaking views overlooking the water, and had just the wedding they had hoped for. Families and friends danced, laughed, got emotional and watched the happy couple step into their new life as Mr. and Mrs. Not to mention that the food and endless amount of dessert tables were delicious. As Lucie likes to say, "When you have a big Italian wedding, as long as the food is good, everyone will be happy." Had it not been for the Hawaiian honeymoon awaiting for them, they would have probably wished their wedding day never ended.
